San Francisco State University Welcomes Color Struck
A Special Black History Month performance will show why Congresswoman Barbara Lee, educators, and audiences around the country are raving about Color Struck, written and performed by Donald E. Lacy Jr.
This event is co-sponsored by Associated Students of the Performing Arts, College of Ethnic Studies, College of Creative Arts, SFSU Black Alumni and SFSU Black Students Union. The show will honor retired Professors Dr. Wade Nobles, Dr. Raye Richardson, Dr. Richard King and Dr. Oba T’ Shaka on Thursday February 17, 2011 in Mc Kenna Theater at 8:00 pm.
When is racism funny? When veteran comedian, actor, writer, filmmaker and San Francisco radio host Donald E. Lacy Jr. uses a unique blend of comedy, personal experience and drama to examine the social ill of racism and its imposing influence on his early life. “Colorstruck” examines the differences and misunderstandings that lead to racism. It is the poignant story of how a light-skinned African-American is treated and, sometimes, ridiculed by darker-skinned black people. Lacy, an SF State alum, returns to campus to perform this critically acclaimed one-man show, in celebration of African American History Month and in honor of longtime Professors Wade Nobles, Raye Richardson, Richard King and Oba T’Shaka. Presented by Associated Students Performing Arts, College of Ethnic Studies and College of Creative Arts.

The LoveLife Foundation was founded in November of 1997 by Donald Lacy in memory of his daughter, LoEshé Adanma Lacy. LoEshé’s name in English means “Love Life.”
Sixteen year-old LoEshé was an innocent bystander when she was senselessly murdered. Her murder took place on October 20, 1997 across the street from McClymonds High School where she was a student.
